Demographic Impact

Reynosa still serves as a transfer center for north and southbound trade, and reflects a population in transition to families and better paying jobs in San Antonio and South Texas. New migration severely strains the already inadequate availability of housing in Reynosa.


Employment Considerations

Currently almost 70,000 people are employed in 170 Reynosa maquilas.


Unemployment Percentage

McAllen averages 12% - 16% of unemployment, since Reynosa is only about 4% - 6%; representative of its limited labor pool willing to work.


Availability of Labor

Population and demographic projections still point to above average growth, as expected to accompany increased trade, border migration and higher birth rates. Population increases should keep pace with anticipated new maquilas for the remainder of the decade.


Skill Ranking

A greatest number of maquila as that have located in the Reynosa area are still assembly and shelter operations, though a dozen electronics manufacturers provide for a growing skill level of technicians.


Education and Training

Reynosa has approximately 325 schools ranging from kindergarten to college. There are seven (7) universities, two (2) technical institutes and six (6) technical training centers.


Turnover Rates

In general terms, turnover is lower in Nuevo Laredo because of a the isolation of the region and lack of better employment opportunities across the border in McAllen. Estimates typically run 5% - 8% per month. Workers in the region are extremely family-oriented, contributing to higher turnover when one member of the family gets ill or quits the job.
